In professional soccer, players, coaches, and researchers alike recognize the importance of cognitive skills. Research addressing the relevance of cognitive skills has been based on the cognitive component skills approach (i.e., general cognitive processes) or the expert performance approach (i.e., sport-specific cognitive processes). Our project a...

The assessment of core executive functions (EFs; i.e., inhibition, working memory, cognitive flexibility) has often been presented as a diagnostic tool for evaluating cognitive functions in recent publications. For example, EFs are essential in soccer because players must quickly adapt, change strategies, and inhibit responses in rapidly changing g...
Article
Sports psychology and kinesiology research focused on executive functions in the last ten years as cognitive functions could be one of the smallest adjustments possible in high-level athletes. We examined the connection of sports experience, (relative-) age effects, and physical maturity on the executive functions in male youth soccer players (N =...

The COVID-19 pandemic is also called a crisis of uncertainty because of so many unforeseeable events like canceled qualification competitions, loss of training facilities, and postponement of the Olympic games. Athletes and their entourage experience this uncertainty as stressful. Sport psychology practitioners (SPPs) are in a key position to suppo...

Interest in electronic sports (esports) has substantially increased over the past decade (e.g., Pluss et al., 2019). Esports can be defined as an individual or team-based activity including competition and ranking systems on amateur and professional levels (Pedraza-Ramirez et al., 2020). Since professional players must perform at a high level (Pedr...

Whether esports can be considered a sport is highly debated. The German Olympic Sport Federation (DOSB) and the German Society for Sport Sciences (DVS) recently stated that esports should not be integrated into the canon of sport. Our aimis not to further fuel this debate but rather to argue that to be or not to be sport is not the most important q...

Ein Anfang des Jahres im Ze-phir anonym veröffentlichter Beitrag thematisiert die Frage, ob es sich beim E-Sport um ein geeignetes Forschungsfeld für den sportwissenschaftlichen Nachwuchs handelt (Anonym, 2020, S. 8–10). Ziel des vorliegenden Kommentars ist zum einen eine erneute Betrachtung der genannten Thematik unter Berücksichtigung eines ander...

Objectives: Competition is related to psychophysiological stress responses and is a key aspect of esports. Yet, while competition may indeed have an impact on performance, little is known about competition-related psychophysical stress responses in esports. Accordingly, this review aims to investigate whether playing esports in competitive (and non...

Psychological stress has been investigated in various sport contexts. Collectively, studies highlighted the role of stress and associated coping strategies on performance. Since competition is a key element of esports, players are required to perform on a high level. Although studies addressed different psychological aspects of performance in espor...
Presentation
The question if esport has to be considered as part of the continuum of sport is highly debated. Despite the absence of a universal definition of esports (e.g., Funk, Pizzo, & Baker, 2018), the German Olympic Sport Federation (DOSB, 2019) and the German Society for Sport Sciences (DVS, 2019) did already state that esports should not be integrated i...

Research has indicated the importance of preservice teacher education programs that focus on fostering positive psychological aspects relevant to teaching in inclusive settings, such as attitudes or self-efficacy. Previous research lacks theoretical underpinning and is limited because of methodological characteristics of the studies (e.g., no contr...

High-fives are a phenomenon that is frequently observed in sports. However, investigations on effects of high-fives are missing. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to examine psychophysiological effects of high-fives. From an embodied cognition perspective, dynamic, upward movements compared to downward movements should activate positive c...

Article
Teacher attitude has been shown to impact way of teaching. Previous studies have identified factors influencing (preservice) teachers’ attitude towards teaching inclusively. However, it remains unclear which factors predict attitude towards inclusion in preservice physical education teachers best. Therefore, the aim of the study is to explore the m...

Stress can impair cognitive performance, as commonly observed in cognitive performance anxiety (CPA; e.g., test anxiety). Cognitive theories indicate that stress impairs performance by increasing attention to negative thoughts, a phenomenon also known as threat-interference. These theories are mainly supported by findings related to self-report mea...

BACKGROUND Dealing with stress is of central importance. Lately, smartphone applications (apps) are deployed in stress interventions as they offer maximal flexibility for users. First results of experimental studies show that anti-stress apps effect subjective perception of stress positively (Ly et al., 2014). However, current literature lacks stud...

Explicit attitudes towards inclusion are increasingly investigated in (preservice) teachers. However, few studies examine implicit attitudes towards inclusion, despite the advantage of being less sensitive to social desirability. Since inclusion is a sensitive topic, we aimed to investigate implicit and explicit attitudes towards inclusion as well...

Although cortisol is assumed to influence performance by affecting cognition during stressful and competitive situations, to date this assumption has not been tested empirically. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate whether the influence of cortisol on performance is mediated by attentional processing of emotional information. Forty-...
Article
To compete successfully, athletes should often focus attention on task-relevant information, thereby inhibiting task-irrelevant distracting information, which can be emotionally laden (e.g., worries about performance). To date, there has been a lack of research assessing athletes’ processing of emotional stimuli. Further, objective measurements ass...

It is known that teachers can have an impact on students and pupils using augmented feedback during school lessons and physical education (PE) courses. The main aim was to investigate the ranking of six feedback factors from the pre-service teachers’ perspective to provide a basis for educational recommendation. We asked 51 pre-service teachers to...
